6.4/7
Posted 3 May

It was a holiday trip with family in the month of January2017. The destination was excellent since the places were good. The location of the hotel was excellent as it was convenient. The appearance of the hotel was very good since it was maintained well. The receptionist was good as the communication was very good. It was a direct booking. The room at this hotel was very good as the cleanliness, and the washroom was very good too. The services at this hotel were excellent as they were very attentive. They provided complimentary breakfast and it was very good since the taste and quality was good. I suggest this hotel to other travellers as the hotel is good to stay.

Posted 28 Mar

Hotel Surya my stay in this hotel was in the month of December. Overall experience in this hotel was good. Only the Wi – Fi was not working. As a destination Shimla it is a very good place to visit and good drivers too. Location of the hotel is very as it is near to the mall road and very convenient. Hotel appearance was very good to look. Reception area had a perfect service. Hotel services are very good as all the services are good. Room was very good as it was very spacious and a big bathroom. Food was very good with a complimentary breakfast with two or three varieties. Only the Wi – Fi I was missing. The people in this hotel answered all our queries.

"Good service and reasonable price"

6.5/7
Posted 18 Nov, 2015

I visited this hotel in September 2015 with friends. The hotel is situated at a good location and provides with a mountain view from its restaurant. The staff is decent and the rooms are clean and reasonably equipped with amenities. The best thing about the hotel is that it has parking and those who have been to Shimla can understand why am I emphasizing so much on parking. The hotel is spread in two lanes which makes the ground floor of the second lane ninth floor of the hotel (again a technicality which only mountain people can understand). It is at a decent distance from the famous mall road. All the facilities are provided. Mainly bathrooms are very neat and clean. The rooms are available at reasonable price. Overall an AWESOME HOTEL for stay.

"Nice hotel & semi luxury"

4.3/7
Posted 14 Dec, 2015

I visited there on 12th Dec 2015 and it was the starting of core winters in Shimla with a little rainfall and snowfall in the upper areas like Narkanda and Kufri. I booked the highest level room- Executive Class because I personally feel the place where you stay matters a lot in your trip. The price asked on Goibibo was 4700/- but I managed to book it in 1793/- by applying some discounts. Thanks to Goibibo. First of all, the room is not that big as it looks in the picture. I have posted some real pictures to have an idea. But according to Shimla, I say, it was okay. The staff were courteous. Full marks to them. But the cleanliness in the room is questionable. The blanket was full of dirt and when I stroked it with my hand the dust literally came out like a massive dirt cloud. Similar was the case with sofas. There were dirty footprints over the sofa as if many monkeys had a fight over the sofa few minutes earlier. Cherry on the cake was the room heater blasted off the moment I turned it on. After complaining, the blanket was changed, sofas were wiped off clean and the room heater was repaired. The wash room does not have a bath tub and was relatively smaller. But it was clean. The wash sink though doesn't have hot water supply so brush your teeth and wash your hands with the bath tap supply. The room though has 3 windows but doesn't get sunlight because it is not East facing. Hotel does have a parking for around 10 vehicles. I got a little scratch on the side of my car which I noticed next morning. The hotel is not very far from Mall road but you have to give it a good 10 Min walk up the hill to reach Mall road. Food is good and the presentation of the food articles is creative. It is a nice budget hotel if booked online with discounts. Otherwise, in 4700/- it is not worth it. If you are looking for luxury, I would say look somewhere else. This hotel is good but you won't get a wow factor. Hope you have a good holiday!

"Good value for money Hotel"

5.1/7
Posted 10 Dec, 2015

My wife and I visited Shimla for the first time for a 2N/3D to enjoy the outgoing Winters and with the last snow of the winters during the visit was actually worth it. We had booked Hotel Surya on the recommendation of my brother who stayed there in his last visit to Shimla. The hotel looked exactly what it appeared in the images. We checked in the hotel around 1 PM and were offered a room at the 6th floor but to our dismay the lift of the hotel was under repair. After driving from Delhi to Shimla, climbing stairs up to 6 floors was a daunting task. It caused a lot of inconvenience though it was functional by the evening. The room was a decent one, tea setup was available in the room. The room appeared clean in the first look but the mattresses quality was not up to the mark. The blankets offered were decent. The bathroom was neat and clean. TV connection quality was not good. The location of Hotel was perfect. The front of the Hotel opened to road to Kufri and back entry of the hotel up 8 floors opened to a lane which is on a 2 minutes walk distance to the entry of the Mall Road. The restaurant at the hotel offered a decent view and was big enough to accommodate 50 odd people at a time. The breakfast offered during our stay was of good quality but less on variety. Hotel Room Service was good and the guys were very helpful and responsive. Food we ordered for dinner was served hot and tasty. In the evening, we took a walk to the Mall Road, there is this very nice 'Madras Coffee House' which offers you a variety of snacks along with Tea/Coffee at very decent prices. It is a must visit. An end to end walk on Shimla's Mall Road is a very nice relaxing experience. You can enjoy all sorts of restaurants on the Mall. You can go shopping from locals to branded. It's all available there. Overall, a nice experience and a value for money stay at the Hotel Surya
